Concertintroduction Artesia Revisited by Dirk Brossé


Conductor and composer Dirk Brossé, together with Symfonieorkest Vlaanderen, conquered many ears in the 1990s with Artesia: an innovative, universal symphony for orchestra, ethnic instruments and soloists. Now, almost 30 years later, Dirk Brossé revisits Artesia and brings an epilogue the piece to the present.

But what is Artesia? What is special about this composition and why are Dirk Brossé and Symfonieorkest Vlaanderen reprising the piece in 2024? You'll find out in this online concert introduction.


Experience Symfonieorkest Vlaanderen and Dirk Brossé live in concert from 14 to 23 March at Concertgebouw Brugge, CC Zwaneberg in Heist-op-den-Berg, Muziekcentrum De Bijloke Ghent and CC De Factorij in Zaventem.
